“ I’ve never been one to express how I feel through art, how I feel is always too complicated. Rather, I find myself creating art to feel something new. Art has always been an escape, but to me it’s the journey that matters. My work doesn’t reflect what I feel but rather what I want to feel. Art makes me feel in control. Out of everything in my life, I can make something look exactly how I want. At any given moment I have the ability to put a pencil to paper and feel something new. Each piece becomes a part of who I am.
I don’t create to dissect life, or try to make meaning of it. I make art to add to my human experience. Being able to share that, and holding something beautiful in my hands as a result, that’s just an added bonus. “
